A celebration in the art of storytelling, the STC presents The Winter’s Tale, one of Shakespeare’s late romances. Traveling through time, visiting the austere court at Sicilia and the bright sea shore of Bohemia, two generations transcend torment and obsession. The Winter’s Tale is a compassionate and dazzling saga that tells the tale of King Leontes, who is overcome with jealousy when he believes his pregnant wife Hermione and his good friend King Polixenes are lovers. Director Rebecca Taichman, whose Cymbeline was “brimming with both heart and good humor” (Washington City Paper) and whose Twelfth Night was “gorgeously romantic… as a brand new as a first kiss” (The Downtowner) returns to direct this classic piece through imagination and wit.
